Artist's Description

Please read the description.

This appears to be a young newly fledged Sulpher Crested Cockatoo.
His tail feathers are very short, the noises he made sounded very broken up and he showed no fear of me at all. The crest that stands up & spreads when alarmed is a very distinctive bright sulpher colour. They love to chew pine cones to extricate the seeds to eat. They live on many types of hard seeds and have a very strong, sharp curved beak. Many pine trees have been cut down because they are not native to Australia & this has displaced many of these handsome cockatoos. They are the sound of the country of Australia & I love to hear & see them flying over our paddocks. The pure white against a deep blue sky is startling, they fly in relatively small noisy flocks.
They are to be found from the Northern Territory down the Eastern Seaboard around to Sth. Australia. There is a very small pocket near Perth W.A.

Location:- ‘Arilka’ Mt. Pleasant, Adelaide Hills, Sth. Australia.
